(4th Eastern League West Division – 7.5 GB)

  • Class-A:

Lake County Captains – 67-51 – .568% (2nd MID Eastern Division – 11 GB)

Minor Notes:

Rodriguez’s Cold Bat: Clipper’s second baseman Josh Rodriguez has completely hit the wall offensively after what seemed to be a solid start in Columbus. Currently sporting a six game hitting slump, Rodriguez is batting a mere .100 average in his last ten games, including only four hits and 16 strikeouts.  Rodriguez has been with the Clippers since his promotion from AA Akron in May, and had a solid transition to AAA Columbus through June and July where he hit ten home runs, 14 doubles and drove in 39 RBI. Although many expected to see Rodriguez for a possible September call-up to the big leagues this season, his lack of consistency at the plate may make the club think twice before they make the move.

Indians Pitcher Anthony Reyes

Reyes’ Rehab Struggles: Starting pitcher Anthony Reyes has had a hard time adjusting in his two recent rehab starts at AA Akron. During his first start on August 1st, Reyes struggled with his command and was pulled after only one inning (after complaining of back soreness) where he allowed seven runs and walked six batters. His second start didn’t prove to fair much better, where he pitched just over four innings and gave up nine earned runs and walked five. His ERA from the two starts combined is 25.41.

McFarland Not Ready For Akron: Left-handed pitcher T.J. McFarland has had a solid season for the Advanced Class A Kinston Indians, posting a 10-4 record with an ERA of 3.05. However, after a seemingly well-earned promotion to AA Akron, his debut as an Aero ended shortly after getting lit up in New Britain last Saturday night- where he gave up six earned runs off of nine hits, including a home run and two walks in only four innings pitched. McFarland was sent back down to the K-Tribe on August 11th, where he will continue to work on his delivery, prove himself as a starting pitcher, and hopefully earn himself a more permanent promotion.
